As Wii U owners, would you have wanted/bought Tales of Symphonia Chronicles...

Only 60% yes? No wonder Namco made it PS3 exclusive.


You mean to imply 100% PS3 users would say yes?


60% Wii U owners = 3.6 million


66% PS3 owners = 52.8 million

Obviously not everyone of those will buy it but that's the potential sales. Divide that by 20 or 30 to get a realistic sales number.

Realistically it's more complicated than that, or no one would ever make games for new hardware. While the PS3 has a much larger install base, not all of that install base is active anymore (various estimates suggest the number of PS3s still in active use is more like 10 million), and there's also far more competition on PS3. On Wii U, it would be the only major RPG for people to buy, which would likely get you a much higher overall attach rate.

You also talking about a platform with no third party support against a console that is getting everything. 60% yes to a dried up console is scary compared to 66% of a console that have so many games competing for sales.

I probably would have. I played them both, but I'd like another rpg on my U and I didn't get into Xillia. What I'd really like is Tales of Phantasia on the VC.

While its true that not every member of a userbase is active, the recent releases and future releases for PS3 have a propensity toward:

1. Japanese games
2 .RPGs
3. budget rereleases and compilations of the above.

I assume what you're saying is you think that most of the PS3s that are still active are RPG fans so there's still a pretty decent market for Tales, which may be true. There certainly hasn't been any real incentive for these people to move to PS4 yet.

Thats exactly my point, and you're probably right about those people moving to the PS4. I don't expect the Tales series itself to move there for several more years. There was a pretty large gap between Abyss and Versparia last gen.

No already own both why would I buy them again?
Do wish it had a Japanese track as I found the VA mediocre at best, but a voice track would not be enough of a reason to buy it again though.

I loved both games when they released, though Dawn is not as good. Since I still have them I probably wouldn't buy the re-release.
